Salem Confronts Three Drug Overdoses

Police in Salem are investigating three drug overdoses in the city, less than a week after a similar series of overdoses in Portsmouth.

NHPR's Brady Carlson reports on a series of overdoses in Salem.

On Tuesday police in Salem found a man unconscious and not breathing. He was revived at a local hospital. They believe he is acquainted with a couple found in a similar state in a vehicle on Monday.

New Hampshire has seen a growing number of heroin deaths and overdoses in recent months.

Last week a man in Portsmouth died and two others were hospitalized following overdoses.

Police there are running tests to see if there’s a tainted or extremely potent form of the drug in circulation.
